U.S. Silica Bold Goals

Our sustainability efforts fall into three areas: People, Planet and Prosperity. Under the guidance of our Sustainability Council, we have outlined a set of Bold Goals that we aim to reach by 2017.

  • Achieve zero reportable incidents and zero lost time incidents — no one will be injured.
  • Actively seek opportunities to volunteer/engage in community activities and triple annual donations to charities.
  • Achieve 100% engagement in sustainability and corporate responsibility.

  • Reduce our GHG emissions per ton of product by 20% using 2010 as a baseline.
  • Conserve and preserve water, energy and land.
  • Reduce, reuse or recycle 90% of all waste materials resulting from our operations.

  • Increase the number of sustainable product offerings and expand into new markets.
  • Enhance the quality of life and prosperity for our employees and the communities where we operate.
  • Integrate triple-bottom line thinking into our operations.
